Kevin Kline Hosts Stephen Colbert's Billionaire 'The Donating Game' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 30th 2011 4:45AM
Kevin Kline, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert was already raking in unlimited funds via his Super PAC, but he had to disclose his donors, which was limiting the potential for corporate contributions. So his lawyer found another loophole on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

He can set up a shell company which can take anonymous donations from anyone, including corporations or billionaires, and then the shell company can donate to his Super PAC so it's untraceable.

Kevin Kline, Stephen Colbert Have Articulation ContestLong before hosting his own satirical news show, Stephen Colbert was a TV actor and improv-theatre comedian. Or is that "theater"? Colbert asked stage icon Kevin Kline when he visited 'The Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on COM).

Kline said the word was spelled with an "re," to which the host replied, "Well, welcome to America, sir -- it's 'er.' It's not France."

Colbert refused to be intimidated by the acting icon, saying, "You're known for your great stage prominence, but I will not be out-annunciated by you."

He then launched into a tongue-twisting rhyme that must circulate among thespians, because Kline deftly joined in. Check it out, and decide who is the better articulator.

Kevin Kline Turns Beethoven into Rock on 'Late Night'Before devoting himself to acting, Kevin Kline thought he'd be a musician. In fact, he trained in classical music for two years in college, Kline revealed on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). But he "started too late" and preferred playing in a rock and roll band.

"I had terrible practicing discipline," he said. "I would try to be practicing my classical music, but then I would get distracted by other things."

Jimmy Fallon asked if Kline could demonstrate. The actor began playing the somber notes of Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata.' But he then launched into The Doobie Brothers' 'Takin' It to the Streets.' "Same chords," said Kline. Fallon sang lead and The Roots then kicked in on backup.

Kevin Kline Says Yes to HBO Series

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 24th 2010 10:26AM
Kevin KlineIt's about time Kevin Kline got a TV series. He's always been a solid actor (I was truly happy when he won an Oscar for 'A Fish Called Wanda' because I didn't really think it would happen), and I've wondered why he hasn't come to TV in any regular role before. But now Kline has said yes to a series, a on HBO to be exact.

There's no title for the show yet (which often happens when it's in the early stages), but the plot has Kline playing a doctor who gets out of prison after serving fifteen years for murdering a woman, his mistress. Somehow this doesn't strike me as a wacky comedy. The writer is David Auburn, who wrote the movie 'Proof.'

Ten actors I want to see on TV

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 10th 2008 12:00PM
network tenHave you noticed lately that the new faces cropping up on TV series in starring roles are often actors you've never seen before -- or if you have, it was in a supporting role of a feature or a foreign TV show? Think about it, Lee Pace as the Pie Man on Pushing Daisies, Jonny Lee Miller on Eli Stone, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in New Amsterdam, Michelle Ryan in Bionic Woman, all of these leads are relatively new faces. That's one way to cast series. Another is for big stars to take to TV, if not for the first time, than for a return.

In an interesting article at IGN.com, blogger Travis Fickett points out that there used to be a line of demarcation between the worlds of acting: film actors vs. television actors. But nowadays the stars are going back and forth a lot more fluidly.

Live Blogging The Screen Actors Guild Awards

SAG logo10:04: OK, that's it for me. I haven't even eaten yet. Don't forget to head on over to Moviefone for complete coverage of the awards (and if you missed the show, TNT is going to repeat it at 11).

See you next Friday night at Zac Efron's house.

10:01: Did Josh Brolin just make a snide reference to Julie Christie's "tiniest actor" comment when she accepted her award a few minutes ago, or was it just a joke I didn't get?

9:59: Looks like there's just movie-centric awards left. I forgot there isn't a Best TV Drama or Best TV Comedy category at the SAG Awards.

9:50: Matthew McConaghey and Kate Hudson: king and queen of the crappy romantic film.

9:46: This Farmer's Help Point ad is freaky, but I had a dream the other night that was even stranger. I won't go into details, but it involved a mutant cannibal family and a used record store. That's the last time I eat 8 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups right before bed.

9:36: Blair Underwood talking about the new technology that has come to film and television. The hidden message here is...pay the damn writers for stuff on the internet and cell phones!

9:29: These tributes to the people who died in the past year always make me nervous, because I'm afraid they'll forget someone. But this was well done, including TV character actors with the big name stars, and was even up to date as late as last week.

9:24: Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries is...a tie! Queen Latifah wins. Um, wait, I thought it was a tie? I'm confused.

9:20: Um...Mickey Rooney is aware that this isn't his tribute show, right?

9:18: Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries...Kevin Kline, As You Like It.

9:17: James Spader is slowly morphing into William Shatner.
